A few of you may remember how excited I was to be finally getting the chance to teach my own workshop before it all got cancelled, unfortunately culminating in the tearoom closing down.
I said at the time I would make it happen, well I got off my backside and I have made it happen. I found a superb venue, advertised and I now have five lovely ladies booked in for the six spaces on my November workshop
Whilst this was going on I was asked by the owner of a lovely newly opened tearoom if I would do a workshop there too. Spaces are limited there but all is going well with bookings there too. This one is a month before, in October. Here is the link.
I’ve taught lots of things (I’m a qualified mental health first aid trainer, for example, and in my early career taught English as a Foreign language) but not felting before. My 7 Oct workshop is full (8 people) so I’m organising a second date for February. Exciting new venture. I’ve found (so far) that I recruit most people through my exhibitions.
Congratulations to both of you. I really enjoy teaching. Students are always enthusiastic and so exited to learn. I am sure you will both be great teachers. You are always very helpful hear and explain yourselves well. My only advice is if you are going to hand out instructions do it at the end of class. If you hand then out at the beginning some will try to read ahead and not listen to instructions. Good luck and have fun
